Abstract

This paper presents some empirical evidence suggesting that promotion of manufactured exports can lead to accelerated rates of growth in a developing economy. Based on a two-sectoral model involving exports i::1d non-exports, a method is developed to measure the gains obtained through a reallocation of resources from the domestic to the external sector. The benefits from [ continued export expansion are found to decline over time. Co integration tests confirm the long-run character of the estimated relationships. A simulation based on a dynamic, optimal control model illustrates the growth effects of different shocks and policies affecting the Korean export sector.
